Charles Bridge, Prague, watercolor painting by jane-beata Charles Bridge, Prague, watercolor painting by jane-beata
Closeups

This was my third watercolor, I love this type of coloring and I've put a lot of work into this, it was much more than just one day, finishing overlapped with other paintings. In the end I added white ink to enhance the highlights, with a little more practice I won't be needing to do that anymore. Also, that ink glows a lot on a photograph, in reality it doesn't (:

So what do you think?

PRINTS, iPhone, iPad, laptop, pillow skins, BAGS, shirts

▲ This artwork was painted in watercolor (Schmincke Horadam) & white ink on 300g rough Arches paper, original is 24 x 32 cm / 9.4 x 12.6 "

This painting is the first watercolor painting i really liked, not because i generaly like sharp and defined objects and edges but because of the color. So this painting has really beautiful colors, not by particular objects but like the whole. I really like it when i can close my eyes and see that place in my head. That probably indicates that it has a good impact. For tehnique i gave you little bit lower "grade" but only because i don't like watercolors. I'm sure other people would love it, and I think its beautiful. I'd really would want to be good enough to paint this. Congrats.

It's simple but the composition is very effective. I love the way the street lamps stand out.

It really looks simple in a final form, but gave me hell of a time. Probably just because I'm not used to architecture, though, practice makes miracles, literally :)

Thank you for stopping by (:

The Painting of the Charles Bridge in Prague is free of the mass of people. Painted the image has the great advantage that the bridge comes out in comparison to the photos.
